IMPORTANT FKOll LOWER CALIFORNIA CAP
TURE OF THAT TERRITORY BATTLE OF LA
PAZ-ORGANTATION OF A NEW REPUBLIC.
AVe have late important news from Lower Cali
fornia. That territory has become a republic, through
the instrumentality of the party which lately left
San i rancisco under the command of Col Wjiaiam
Walker. Col. Walkeu was formerly of this city,
and is the son of our esteemed fellow-citizen, James
Walker, Esq. He has, it will be seen, been de
. clared President Bf the New Republia
The New York Herald publishes a full account
of the operations of the invading party. From this
..account we gather the following facts. On the 17th
of October, Col. Walker, with a command of forty
five men, sailed for Lower California, and landed at
Gape St. Lucas, on the 23d, from whence they pro
ceeded to La Paz. This town was taken and the
person of theGovernor secured on the 3d ofNovem
ber, and on that day the independence of Lower
California was proclaimed, and the Mexican flag was
hauled down to make -way lot the stars and stripes.
On the Gth, the President determined to remove
the seat of Government to St Lucas,and according
ly embarked, taking with him the ex-Governor and
publie documents. Shortly after embarkation, a ves
sel arrived in port with the new Governor sent out
by the government of Mexico, who was speedily
taken in hand by Col. Walker's party. On" the
same day Col W.'s party had a smart skirmish with
the native?, in which the latter were defeated, with
the loss of six or seven killed and several wounded.
Such are the incidents of the invasion as given by
the JTerultT s correspondent.
The officers who compose the new Republic are
as Views, viz
William Walker, President of the republic r
: Lower California:
Frederick Emory, Secretary of State.
' John M. Jarnagin, Secretary of War.
Howard A. Snow, Secretary of Navy.

COMPLIMENTARY BENEFIT TO MR- NEAFIE. j
Many ofonr playgoers are talking about a com- ;
plimcntary benefit to Mr. XtoiriE, the Tragedian. "t
The idea is a good one, and should be carried out. .
Mr. Nkafie's merits as an actor entitle hinTtcf'tbis
distinction, and our theatrical friends cannoLgive a
better nroof 0f their good taste than by extending
to him such a mark of their approbation. ,
We respectfully suggest that, imcase the lovers
of the stage here think proper to give AI.Nkajie a
cjinplimenlary benefit, Ins own beautiful production
of the "Merchant of Calais' be selected asTlicgprin
cipal play, and the admirable comedy otDonCacsar
De Bazan as. the aftcr-piccc. Isthc suggestion a
a good .one? - - -
We call the attention of ourrcadcr5to the
critique, in another column, on thenew play ofJUAn
olde, which will be performed to-night at tho
Adelphi. It is an emanation of Mr. NEArns""pro
Iific genius and to witness an actor personate his
own creation wilt bo -a treat ineeed Tho.play.con
tains none of the "horrible," but is of that-peculiar
character of stage representation which pleases the
most schsativo minds. We are surt therelsfrethat

to bestow upon the actor'and author their7graeious
